Square Enix has announced that the PS3 action game Drakengard 3 will be out in Japan on October 31.
The game will be sold in a regular edition and a Drakengard 3 10th Anniversary box set via Square Enix's e-store. In addition to the game, the set will contain a book called Drakengard: World Inside, a music CD called Drakengard Chips Music that features 24 tracks from the Drakengard and Nier games remixed in an 8-bit style, and a Blu-ray disc called Drakengard History Films that contains cutscenes, trailers, and commercials for the Drakengard titles.
The box set also contains an art book, a Drakengard 3 DLC code, and a novella that acts as a prequel to Drakengard 3. Square Enix has yet to announce plans for a North American and European release.
Drakengard 3 is an action game that mixes ground-based combat and air combat using dragons. Players control two sisters named Zero and One who wield the power of the ancient Utautai goddesses. The former wishes to kill the remaining Utautai for reasons unknown, while the latter wants to bring peace and stability to the world.
